Our response to the Department for Education's statement on exam arrangements in 2020.

The word Ofqual in grey lower case letters, underlined in green.

We welcome the further information and clarity the Department for Education has outlined today to award students a calculated grade for their GCSEs, AS and A levels this summer, and to provide an exam option for those that wish it as soon as is reasonably possible after schools reopen.

We are working tirelessly to support students affected by these unprecedented and difficult circumstances and to develop, quickly, a fair and consistent process. We know that schools and colleges urgently need to know what they will need to do, and when.

Work is already underway with exam boards and teachers’ representatives to develop our proposals and we will provide more detail in the coming days.
